I want to talk a little about my book. Pixie the cat came to me back in 2007 I believe. I actually wrote the first draft of the first short story for a class. I got a little flack for writing a story for kids in an Intro to Fiction class at my university, but Pixie never left my thoughts. Mind you, that first draft was vastly different; it's certainly been through many changes.
I left the young cat aside while I worked on other projects and
didn't think about him again until March 2011, several months into
volunteering at an animal shelter. I wanted to make a bigger difference,
and also establish myself as a writer.
So I thought again of Pixie and decided that the orange tabby needed
a book of his own, to live somewhere outside my head. Motivated by my
love of animals, I decided that I would donate a substantial amount of
all royalties made to help save real life cats and/or dogs.
Which brings me to today, where my book sits waiting on its Amazon
page, hoping to get noticed. And maybe, Pixie will get to help a cat or
